SEC Football in HD
Sep. 15, 2005

CBS SPORTS TO BROADCAST SEC COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAME OF THE WEEK IN HIGH DEFINITION

HDTV Coverage Kicks Off in Prime Time on Saturday, Sept. 17 with Tennessee-Florida

CBS Sports announced today it will broadcast one SEC College Football game a week for 12 consecutive weekends in high definition television format, beginning with its primetime telecast of Tennessee at Florida on Saturday, Sept. 17 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET) through the SEC Championship. In addition, for the first time the Sun Bowl on Friday, Dec. 30 will be broadcast in HDTV. The 2005 season marks the fifth consecutive season that CBS Sports has broadcast college football games in HDTV.

CBS Sports' SEC broadcasts will feature the highest definition television format -- 1080 lines of picture resolution -- and 5.1 digital audio. The unified productions for the Standard Definition and HD telecasts will feature the same announcers, camera angles, replays and graphics.

Throughout the last five years CBS Sports has been the industry leader in college football HDTV broadcasts.
2001 – CBS Sports is first to broadcast a full season of college football in HDTV. The broadcast was the first CBS Sports unified HDTV production where the Standard Definition and HD telecasts featured the same announcers, camera angles, replays and graphics. Thirteen regular-season games including the SEC Championship game were broadcast in HD
2002 – CBS Sports broadcast a total of 15 college football games in HDTV.
2003 – CBS Sports’ college football HDTV broadcasts begin using 5.1 digital sound.
2005 – CBS Sports will broadcast a game a week in HD for 12 consecutive weeks, as well as the Sun Bowl.

In the 2005-06 television season, CBS Sports will broadcast 32 weekends of premiere event sports programming in high definition. Historically, CBS, CBS Sports was responsible for the first ever broadcast of a professional football game in high definition when the Buffalo Bills faced the New York Jets live format on Sunday, November 8, 1998. when the historic broadcast featured the AFC East Division co-leaders, Buffalo Bills against the New York Jets live on the CBS Television Network. The game was the first of four high definition games presented by CBS Sports during the 1998 season. CBS also broadcast the 2001 and 2004 Super Bowls and all of the AFC Playoffs from 2003-05 in HDTV, in addition to its HD coverage of selected regular-season NFL games in the 2003 and 2004 seasons.

During the 2005-06 television season, CBS will broadcasts an average of 34 hours per week of High Definition programming, more than any other broadcast network, and more original HD programming per week than any other network, broadcast or cable or satellite. One hundred and ninety-one of CBS's owned and affiliated stations are currently broadcasting in digital, covering approximately 99 percent of the nation.

CBS Television is comprised of the CBS Television Network -- with over 200 owned and affiliated stations reaching virtually every television home in the United States; the Network's programming arms CBS Entertainment, CBS News and CBS Sports; and CBS Enterprises, a global leader in distribution.

15 HD games in 2002.

13 HD games in 2005.

Does that mean 8 HD games in 2010 and 0 HD games by 2018???

Thankfully they've got the Sun Bowl!!!

I just hope they keep the PQ up to the level of previous years.

I'm afraid D*'s PQ has soured me on this whole HD thing.

In 2002 they were not doing NFL in HD either...CBS has been doing more sports than anyone else for a long time...maybe they deserve a little slack...who else, besides ESPN, does as much college hoops in HD? who else besides Fox does as much NFL in HD? who else does any golf in HD? who else does a major tennis tournament in HD?

Tomorrow afternoon? It may start tomorrow afternoon, but will end around the time the UT/Florida game will be starting. NBC broadcasts of Notre Dame are stupid long.

No mention of the Army-Navy game?
I think HDsportsguide lists it as HD, but Im not sure if they are just basing it on that it was last year.

There is more whining and complaining about HD coverage or lack of so I want to thank CBS for providing the best football conference in HD for the last 4-5 years.

This single product/presentation by CBS is the main reason I built my PJ room for watching my Vols on Saturday afternoons/evenings.

You can complain about CBS all you want they are much appreciated from my standpoint. What are you Big 10/ACC/Pac 10 fans watching on ABC???? Up until this year what has ESPN/NBC given you for college football in HD????

THANK YOU CBS!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll check, but my guess is that it's a mistake not listing it.
